House Hunting

I really, really enjoy the onset of spring.  And in 2014 I need and appreciate every positive sign.  Here's an especially good one.  I caught sight of a pair of Eastern Bluebirds doing some house hunting -- at my purpose-built bluebird box on a post!  The female was intrigued enough to enter the box and inspect the premises which are clean and tidy.  No bluebirds used this box in the past two seasons and I am hopeful 2014 is the charm!  I shall know in a few weeks if they bought the place.  Still, just seeing birds on this house hunt is a nice sign of better weather to come!
